Drag Racing the Police

If you're over 18, can get to the Miami area, and have $25, you can race your car against police officers driving cruisers -legally! Officers from several local departments race at County Line Drag Way once a month in an event called Beat the Heat.
"You could bring your mother's minivan. You can bring a pure racing car. It doesn't matter," said Officer Jose Ayala with the Medley Police Department.

"We're actually getting a lot of kids and adults alike come here and say, 'We used to race in Davie. You probably used to chase us around, and now we're here on the track and we want to race your car,'" said Officer Ron Bradley with the Davie Police.

Officers said they have seen a drastic reduction in illegal street racing since Beat the Heat started in 2007.

The next Beat the Heat race is May 23rd. Link -via reddit

Hey Race Fans....

I read through these blogs and did want to mention ( I am one of the owners of the track here in Miami) that these police cars are modified cars.. These cars are built all with CONTRIBUTIONS as the National Beat The Heat program is a not-for-profit. These are not the cars officers use while they are on duty!
